Keeping up with changing consumer demand requires products and systems with the ability to adapt to changing manufacturing needs. Fast-moving consumer goods use hot melt adhesives to keep production lines running at higher speeds for a variety of bonding needs. The challenge is keeping a steady flow of adhesive to the production lines without increasing manpower or experiencing changes in adhesive temperature or overfilling hot melt tanks.
Some of the most challenging consumer products are related to personal hygiene applications. The product construction includes multiple substrates from nonwoven materials to plastic barriers and can be challenging to find the right mix of products. In addition, consumers demand absorbency, softness, low odor and discreteness which adds another layer of complexity. Both large and small brand owners agree, the top priority is quality and safety in personal hygiene applications.
